    Yeah and while you're at it why wasn't Eisenhower better prepared in the Ardennes in December 1944?

    Seriously, do you honestly believe that the Obama administration thought it would serve them better politically if Americans were killed in Libya, instead of being saved?

    You people are making arguments that are clinically insane.

    What is expected is to find out why the admin. Lied about 4 dead americans. How would you feel if they were a member of your family. Would you want to know?

    it appears that that is exactly what the obama admin thought. let them die, then blame the video, then win the election and forget about it.

    How was it insane to ask Panetta why no help was sent immediately? He answered "it would have taken too long".

    This is his testimony on the record.

    So how is it insane to then to follow up and ask Panetta how he could have concluded that "it would have taken too long"?

    When one doesn't know in advance how long the terrorist attack would last.

    Not even sending them was a gutless move, but if you can't protect them why risk having them there?

    Comparing Eisenhower in the Ardennes is childish for nowhere did I say anything about not being prepared.

    I questioned how the administration knew the siege would last less time than it would take to get the military there.

    As for this line....

    Seriously, do you honestly believe that the Obama administration thought it would serve them better politically if Americans were killed in Libya, instead of being saved?

    I believe it is possible that he weighed the affects of the following scenarios on his campaign...

    1) What if I send in Marines and they are killed...I will lose some of my supporters
    2) If I send the military into a sovereign nation, how will that look to my base

    You see...here is the difference between you and I on this subject...

    I believe when there is conflicting information and contradictions as it pertains to the executive branch, congress needs to look into it. Seeing as emails were not offered up and this was found out, congress has the responsibility to find out "why".....regardless of the party of the President.

    You believe Democrats NEVER do things unethically...NEVER make mistakes....NEVER lie.

    This illustrates that Obama is unprepared, gutless, and could care less about those he puts in harm's way.
